Tutti Toot Trumpet
A unique product that would combine both games and
airway clearance therapy for respiratory diseases.
Tutti Toot Trumpet
The Tutti Toot Trumpet is a novel digital medical and musical device providing improved Airway Clearance Treatment compliance, robust infection control and real-time Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) measurement for patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Asthma and other respiratory conditions.
Globally, 70-100k people have Cystic Fibrosis (CF), 251 million people have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), of whom 65 million have moderate to severe COPD and the World Health Organisation reports 339 million (including 6.2 million children) have asthma. In the UK disease prevalence of CF is 10,509
ACT aims to release sticky, thick mucus from the lungs. Patients are recommended to attempt ACT using current PEP devices twice a day. It is a laborious process and clinicians report significant non-compliance in children and adults
How we are helping
Tutti Toot Ltd aim to address the noncompliance of current ACT/peak flow devices by a) providing connectivity to patients, parents and clinicians with output results, b) providing immediate feedback on ACT/PEP and musical performance and adherence, c) offering the ability to connect to a community of other users d) offering the opportunity to link ACT to the learning and performance of music and e) Gamifying the Tutti Toot Trumpet (similar to ‘Guitar Hero’), using different platforms for different groups of patients.
